Hi I'm kathy

I am a wife,mother,grandma,teacher and I'm a member of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints-commonly called Mormons.

About Me

I'm married to an awesone man who has helped me raise eight beautiful children. We now have thirteen precious grandchildren ranging in ages froom fifteen down to three months. We truly have been blessed. I used to teach in several of the rural schools around our home town area until I decided to stay home and be a full time mom. Although I'm not teaching I still continue to take classes to renew my teaching certifiicate. I am now cleaning houses and help with Faith in Action which helps the elderly stay in their homes as long as possible.

Why I am a Mormon

The move to become Mormon was not an overnight decision. It was with much prayer and fasting. I had been reading the book of Mormon and told Heavenly Father if he wanted me to be baptized and join the church then that is what I would do. I did and since then I continue to learn everyday, especially on Sundays during sacrament and the meetings that follow. I know who I am(a beloved daughter of God), why I am here and where I'll be after I leave this earth. It's so gratifying knowing I'm finally where I should and need to be.

How I live my faith

I love helping other people especially those who have a hard time and are struggling to do things for themselves. I have been helping the elderly in their homes by cleaning, running errands, driving them to Dr. appointments, cooking, doing laundry, and sometimes just visiting with them. They are so appreciative and love to have someone around. I also do visiting teaching with some of the women from our branch or help clean their homes, take meals to them when they're ill or babysit with their children . The Lord said to be in the service of your fellow men and you will be happy. This is so true because when you are helping others you really are helping yourself and it makes you happy.

Are Mormons Christians?

kathy
Absolutley! Even the name of the church states Christ's name-The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter- Day Saints. Not only are we christians, but in everything we do we try to emulate Christ. We read and study the Book of Mormon along with the Bible. The Book of Mormon tells us about the people here in the Americas much like the people in the bible. It is so nice to know that Christ also thought of his people here in America and wanted them to know exactly the same things he taught to the people in Jerusalem and surrounding areas. No matter where we are God provides for all his Children. He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. Show more Show less
